Best Splurge: Pentax 645Z
Pentax’s 645Z may have been released in June 2014, but the 51.4-megapixel CMOS sensor camera is still a photographer’s delight. With a battery life that exceeds 650 photos and glowing five-star reviews on Amazon, the 645Z is proof that age doesn’t always have to matter. As a medium format camera, there’s no question the price tag is going to be very high before you even add in the purchase of the lens, so it’s definitely not geared for the casual shooter. Medium format excels at enlarging photos without losing detail and does so better than a standard DLSR camera.
